Oh boy, I thought I had plumbed the depths already, but this one goes down all the way to the bottom of the Phillipine trench, which is not so far away from Malaysia where this utter dross was made. All sounded fairly promising. A film very loosely based on the 16th century Malay chronicles about a Roman prince who travels east to marry a Chinese princess of the Han dynasty. An East meets West historical extravaganza along the lines of Valerio Massimo Manfredi's book "Empire of the Dragons", or so I forlornly hoped. What I got was very different! I won't give any detailed synopsis, because I simply don't want to waste my time reviewing such utter rubbish. I wasted quite enough watching it! Lets just say everything about the film is dire, which sums it up nicely. It was apparently Malaysia's second most expensive film ever. What a terrible waste of money. The acting is worse than that in my village panto. The plot is non existent. The action is about the worst I have ever seen, with special effects that beggar belief for all the wrong reasons. The fact that I watched this film to the end is testament to my stubborn streak, that merges seamlessly into stupidity. I have never watched a Malaysian film, and after this experience it is doubtful I will ever watch another. After watching a few decent films recently it was back to reality with a vengeance. Don't be fooled by the cover. As usual be guided by the Amazon star rating which is never too far away from the truth. It does not even fall into the Ed Wood "its so bad it has to be good" category. Just do yourself a favour and avoid wasting 107 minutes of your life. Surely this film deserves to sweep the honours at the Golden Turkey awards. This is a 21 carat doozy!

This is not a good film, however I am going to try to be objective. It is based on The Malay Chronicles from the 16th Century, which are pretty much myth and if you approach this as a sort of swords and sandals `Sinbad' then from certain viewer's points of view this may have some merit.

It supposedly tells the story of the uniting of the Han Chinese Empire and the Roman Empire of Hadrian, a Roman `Prince' is sent to marry a Chinese `Princess' and they are to meet in Malaysia via Goa, where the hapless Romans have to enlist the aid of a sea rover (Merong Mahawangsa) who claims to be descended from Alexander the Great. Once they get to this place of the `joining of empires' and a 'great trading centre'(a beach with a few bits of bamboo) where this ceremony is to take place, things start to go wrong.

If you have stuck with it thus far there is then a big fight, which is basically what this movie is selling itself as, a fight fest. I don't want to spoil the `plot' but needless to say after many, many plot holes there is some more fight scenes. I watched this with my nephew and one of his friends and they thought it was `awesome' etc. I begged to differ citing the historical, factual, material and language inaccuracies, all to no avail. That I think is the point, if you are prepared to suspend belief and forget even basic historical knowledge, then there is an average fight fest type of film trying to get out. The cover does mention the special effects as `stunning' well to have believed that you probably would needed to have been `stunned' possibly with a taser.

Also there really is not a `clash of empires'; more like a fight over some rock in the Pacific Ocean, so pretty much setting itself up for a fall straight away.

I had been eagerly anticipating this movie, expecting something equivalent to 300. However despite having a pretty good storyline and premise to work from the film suffers from VERY poor acting, a weak script and below average fight sequences. Don't get me wrong it must have cost a few quid to make and doesn't look cheap but it has no real style to it, no visual impact. It's like watching a film version of the Hercules TV series but without the flair. Sorry, I would tend to avoid this one.

This is one of those films where you go in expecting a low budget B rate war movie the that just sucks. After the first 15 mins you realise that it is visually stunning and gripping through out. The excellent action sequences are a bonus. It is a must see. 4 Star worthy!!

Format: DVD
This is another pseudo-history that have become very popular with the movie goers. The exception is this is not really a pseudo-history, but a story based upon one iota of fact. WARNING: May contain plot spoilers.

Rome and China decide to come together with a wedding of a Roman prince and Chinese princess. They are going to do this on neutral ground in Malaysia (The movie was a big hit there.) The Roman fleet carrying the prince gets damaged and loses its gold ships. They limp into India and attempt to get more vessels, but without the gold, the crafty Indian (They make him talk like a convenience store owner) won't budge.

They end up hiring a warrior/slave (Stephen Rahman Hughes as Merong ), who descends from Alexander to take them in his small junque. The prince (Gavin Stenhouse as Marcus Carpenius ) is concerned that the princess may not love him. We get that answer in the next scene as we see the Chinese princess (Jing Lusi as Princess Meng Li Hua ) is bathing, complaining to her attendant she does not want to marry a barbarian. The movie shows the contempt Eastern civilization had for the west as they were "barbarians", "fur and gold wearers" and "boy lovers."

Rome is not at home in Malaysia. Clearly they are not in charge and are at the mercy of their host. Speaking of which, once the princess saw the Roman she opts to flee with her attendant Ying Ying (Nell Ng).

Marcus is also very adept in various Chinese fighting techniques.

There is sorcery by those that pray to the "old gods." There is a prophecy that Merong keeps remembering, one that his mother always spoke to him. Don't worry, if you missed it the first few times, you get to see it again.

When Merong is with his own people he speaks a foreign language with subtitles.
